Hi all After managing to talk my other half into letting me get a pair of pigs, I got Chip and Chop from my local pets at home about 2 weeks ago. They have both settled in really well, Chip is a little nervous around being picked up but im sure in time he will calm down. After a few days of bringing them home, I noticed that Chop's eye was slightly closed up and was weeping a little, the next day I took him back to pets at home as they said any problems within the first 2 weeks, take him back and they will sort things out regarding him. They gave me some eye gel and told me if it doesn't clear up within a week, to take him back and they will cover any vet fees. Today was his week up, and last night I noticed him sneezing, had a runny nose and coughing (what I think is coughing, sounds really cute, a bit like donald duck) no seriously though I was worried, as first thing that came to mind was URI. I took him to my pets at home first thing today and they confirmed it sounded like a URI to them too, so off we went to their companion care vets this afternoon. He has now been treated with oral antibiotics and eye drops. The vet checked his heart and said it sounded perfectly fine and healthy, which was a relief. Tonight Chop's eye (which the vet confirmed to be conjunctivitis) is now looking alot brighter, he is still sniffling but hes not sneezing and coughing as much which is good. He is still eating, drinking as normal and is still very active. Now I know what's probably coming with this thread, I shouldn't have gone to pets at home for an animal, but truth, I dont mind them. I have heard horror stories about them, ive also had a poorly animal from there in the past which sadly had to be put to sleep. But I have also had 2 very happy and healthy hamsters, one which I still have I think they get such bad press because they are such a big chain and everyone knows about them. Im sure alot of pet stores have problems with their animals being ill sometimes, its just not everyone knows about them.
